Hangs at 1% of the second clip

Question

I have recently boought EMC 9 and am having a fair few problems with it (mostly resolved with everyones help).

 

I am now stuck however. System spec:

Pentium D940 3.3Ghz

800 MHz front side bus

socket 775

Intel 945P

360GB hard drive

7200RPM

GEforce 7600GS

Realtek ALC 882 chipset

XP Media Centre

 

HP Pavillion Media Center TV m7480

 

Hope that helps.

 

I have solved some problems byupdating to Direct X 9 and have downloaded the nvidia update. Don't know if i need to uninstall the old driver first but didn't know how to do that.

 

Have managed to write a couple of dvds but now having a problem when have got 2 videos. Captured them both with video wave and added a menu and then chapterised each of the clips. Tried burning the dvd and it encoded the first video then crashed at 1% of the second one (lots of times). This is when i tried the nvidia driver. Also tried rendering with software instead but still no joy. When encoding the preview is shown briefly and then had a grey background with mpeg on it. Is this right?

 

Think the software will be great once problms are ironed out but finding it hard at the moment.

 

Many thanks,

 

Jimmy

Yes there is, VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller.

 

I assume i need a different cable and will need to plug it into a different connection?

 

Yes you do. USB isn't going to work. EMC suites will see the camcorder as a webcam, and even if you can capture, the quality will be low.

 

Get a Sony cable if you can, but if you can't get one in a store near you, get a good Belkin firewire cable. Best Buy has them.

 

The cable will run you between $35 and $40. Don't get one of the cheap ones, because if you buy cheap, you will buy twice.

Thanks for that. Tried some of the ideas but unfirtunately missed my deadline and had to revert back to the good old VHS! What a waste of time!

 

Trying a different project now:

Captured files using videowave (now saved as 'Movie Clip') Is this the correct type of file for MyDVD9?

Have edited the whole clip into 5 smaller clips ith a basic menu. When encoding it stops at 99% of the first clip and then hangs.

 

Really getting lost now as tried everything that people suggest and nothing seems to be working. Am i doing something wrong?

 

Read a post from Roxio which may suggest that my camcorder is not supported for capture. Could this be the root of my problems? Sony - DCR TRV255E

 

Also tried Roxan and went into msconfig and cleared the startup. Still no joy.

 

Just donloaded a trial of Arcsoft software Showbiz DVD2 as am desperate for some kind of output by Tues/Weds.

Don't know if i need to uninstall the old driver first but didn't know how to do that.

 

http://www.nvidia.com/object/driver_installation_hints.html

 

Driver Installation Hints

 

 

"Download Accelerator" utilities should be disabled when downloading any drivers.

 

 

Do not run virus protection software in the background while installing the drivers. This prevents the driver from configuring itself properly.

 

 

Before installing new drivers make sure you uninstall all NVIDIA display drivers from the Windows Control Panel. Browse to the Start Menu > Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and search for "NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers" or "NVIDIA Display Drivers" and select remove.

Have finally got round to getting/trying the firewire cable.

 

It worked! Wouldn't do it with hardware rendering though but did work when software rendering. Don't really know why as think my system specs should handle it and have updated everything. Am glad i have finally got some success though.

 

Quality is also hugely better than using USB through moviemaker too.

 

Thanks for help everyone,

Cheers,

Jimmy

Have finally managed to write a DVD!

 

Got really fed up with EMC and decided to try capturing the video in Moviemaker and then using My DVD to produce the project. Thankfully this worked.

 

However, why?

 

Video wave captures video but it doesn't work in My DVD. Is this a common problem or is it more likely that my camcorder is not compatible? Either way im going to have to do it this way in future.

 

Any ideas anyone - thanks for all of your help so far

What type of file did you capture as, and how is your video camera connected to you computer?

Will see what i can do. Does it then come up as an option in videowave to do that?

Sorry, really don't know much about digital video at all!

Dobnt that camcorder is new enough though (4 years old) for a fire wire (Sony - DCR TRV255E). A new camcorder may be in order

That camcorder does have a firewire (Ilink) output. Now, check to see if your computer does. Go to Device Manager, and see if there is a listing for IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controllers.
